There has also been some speculative chatter regarding Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network) reprising his Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice role as Lex Luthor, and even talk of a cameo from Ben Affleck's (Gone Girl) Batman, though all that remains firmly in the rumour mill for now.
Ayer has also posted a shot of Smith's Headshot in full costume.
Suicide Squad, as you may know by now, brings to life the comic book adventures of a group of DC Comics villains and anti-heroes coerced by shadowy government forces into completing hazardous missions with the lure of pardons or reduced punishments. Ayer is taking aim an 5 August 2016 release date and his film will be the first of the new DC Entertainment titles to follow Zack Synder's (Man Of Steel) Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice.
